Workplace Abuse Types

Workplace abuse is behavior that causes workers emotional or physical harm. Harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence are forms of workplace abuse.

These behaviors aren’t always distinguishable from one another because they frequently overlap. Harassment can be discriminatory, bullying can be a form of harassment, and any of these behaviors can lead to workplace violence.

Workplace Discrimination

Discriminatory behavior treats workers unfairly on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age or genetic information. Discrimination is prohibited by federal and state laws.

Unfair actions include harassment, retaliation, denying employment opportunities and making decisions that adversely affect people in these categories. Anti-discrimination laws cover all areas of employment, ranging from hiring and firing, to pay, disability leave, training and layoffs.

Workplace Bullying

Workplace bullying ranges from isolating to verbally threatening fellow workers. Bullies can cause anxiety, depression, fear and post-traumatic disorder symptoms in their victims.

A person who threatens a coworker with physical harm is considered a typical bully. However, the supervisor who regularly demeans an employee or threatens to fire him also is a bully.

Bullies sometimes ignore their victims to make them feel nonexistent. Bullies also use other tactics to humiliate their victims, such as gossiping and spreading lies about them or sabotaging their work.

Workplace Violence

The federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration defines workplace violence as an act or threat of physical harm against another person at the work site. Abusers might physically assault their victims or use verbal abuse to intimidate them.

Workplace violence can lead to homicide, which is the fourth leading cause of occupational injuries in the U.S., according to OSHA. The agency also reports that violence leading to homicide takes the lives of women in the workplace more than any other cause.

Factors that put workers at risk for violence include working alone, at night or in isolated areas. Cashiers and others who exchange money with the public also are at high risk for violence. Law enforcement agents, delivery drivers, health care workers and public and customer service personnel are routinely victims.

Workplace Harassment

Harassment consists of actions or comments that a worker finds offensive. The worker doesn’t have to be the harasser’s target; he can be a third party who hears or witnesses the behavior.

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, harassment becomes unlawful when it’s so severe that it creates a hostile workplace for an employee or the employee has to put up with the misconduct to keep her job.

Bullying, discrimination and violence often are categorized as workplace harassment. Therefore, harassment victims suffer the same emotional, physical and social effects as the other forms of workplace abuse.

OSHA recommends that workplaces adopt zero-tolerance policies for violence and have enforcement procedures in place to protect employees. The agency suggests that employers set up workplace violence prevention programs and systems that allow workers to report violent activities.

The EEOC recommends zero-tolerance policies for violence, bullying, discrimination and harassment. The commission enforces laws covering workplace abuse.

Basictech Website Optimization Services

Below is a list of Basictech Website Optimization Services we offer here at Basictech Information Services LLC. This goes beyond SEO, and can increase your page rank.

We will work closely with you to resolve issues, and maximize your business potential at an extremely affordable rate using a little known or often ignored technique to boost online presence.

The whole world is now literally in the palms of your hands, so why not capitalize on this opportunity to capture more customers?

Build a Website or Blog

In today’s business world, it is not enough to just have a website or blog. When people search for products or services, they go directly to the internet. Is your business being found?

I know it may be a little hard to believe, but there are still plenty of businesses that do not have a website or blog. Also, some may have a website, but it is not up to date and is just sitting in cyberspace never to be found.

Why is Your Website Not Being Found?

There are several factors that come into play when it comes to getting found on the internet, much less getting to page one.

We hear a lot talk about SEO (search engine optimization) but there is a lot more to it, and the implications can have a great effect on your business in positive or negative ways.

Here are just a few things that can help, or hurt your web presence.

  • Domain and domain age
  • Regular updates
  • Backlinks and broken links
  • Page loading time
  • Quality relevant content posted regularly
  • Social media
  • Business listings

These are just a few factors that Basictech Website Optimization Services can help you with having a good internet presence and attracting customers.

Basictech can perform an audit on your website according to Google standards. We also have a software program that can search your site for errors. Errors can have a dramatic negative effect on your website search ability.

Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

I am listing that one question first because of the extreme importance of having a website that is compatible with mobile devices.

This is pretty obvious given the fact that almost everyone has a mobile phone with internet access in their possession.

If your website or blog is not easily accessible, or easily read on a mobile device, then you are missing out on potential customers.

Why is Website Content Important?

Whenever someone searches for anything on the internet, they are looking for useful information, so website content is extremely important.

There are 2 main reasons for this:

  1. If a person goes to your website and is able to read valuable information on the resolution of their problem, then they will stay on your site longer. This tells Google that you have relevant content, and will in turn increase your page rankings.
  2. Good quality relevant content also builds trust. As business people, we know that building trust is top priority in getting and retaining customers or clients.

Bad grammar, spelling, and poor content can hurt your business. How can anyone be expected to trust that you are an expert in your field if your content is loaded with grammar and/or spelling errors?

Poor content is also a factor. We all know how frustrating it is to search the internet for information and waist valuable time sorting through all the generic articles with poor grammar and limited information leading to a bunch of sales crap, or trying to get your email address so they can spam you later.

Reputation Management

It is a known fact that people are more likely to write a complaint than a good review. It is basic psychology based on emotions. When people are happy with a product or service they will tell friends and family, but if they are unhappy, or feel cheated in any way, they want to scream it from the rooftops.

As business people, we know that there are some people that you just cannot please. Then there are those that are just trying to get something for nothing, and they will go to great lengths to get it.

Competition is also a threat. There are a lot of competitors that pay people (outsourcers) to write bad reviews on the competition. As a trained Investigator, I can identify and deal with these unscrupulous competitors.

Bad reviews and posted complaints can hurt your business significantly. We at Basictech know how to deal with this and can have your reputation restored in a short amount of time.

Is Your Website Monetized?

Website monetization is generating income through advertising of other products or services on your website.

There are many ways to monetize your website, and anyone that has a website or blog needs to have it monetized. If you are not monetizing your website, you are leaving money on the table.

This is something that can be discussed in you initial free consultation and website review.

Basictech Website Optimization Services can increase your bottom line with some very cost effective methods to land you more customers. Call us today for your free consultation (614)636-2184, or use the form below.

Easy Business Loans by Basictech

Easy Business Loans

We have recently teamed up with a nationwide business loan company to provide easy business loans by Basictech

The business loan company we have teamed up with is called Mom and Pop Merchant Solutions, and they are serving all 50 states.

Please note:  Mom and Pop Merchant Solutions ONLY accepts applications through their ISOs, so if you are considering applying for a loan, you must contact us, or another ISO.

Easy Business Loans

I titled this post Easy Business Loans by Basictech because I have never seen any institution make business loans so simple and easy as Mom and Pop Business Solutions.

The application is about a half a page long, and the approval process takes just a few days. They pride themselves on being able to fund businesses in just 5-7 business days.

These are not conventional loans. They are considered “Business Loan Alternatives”, in all states with the exception of California.

MPMS are purchasing future receivables at a discount, so the paperwork and approval process is much simpler.

Advantages of Business Loan Alternatives

There are certain advantages to business loan alternatives to include:

  • No fixed payback schedule
  • Application process is quick
  • Cash in business account in days
  • Completely automated payback
  • No hidden fees
  • No collateral
  • No late fees
  • Credit score does not make or break the deal
  • Cash flow friendly

How to Get a Business Loan

The first step is to contact me at: randy@basictech.company.com

Call (614) 636-2184. You may also use the contact form at the bottom of the page if you have any questions.

You will need 3 months bank statements, and 3 months ACH statements for your business.

If you do not take credit cards, then you will need to provide 6 months worth of bank statements.

How Much Can I Borrow?

The loan amount depends on your monthly revenue. Mom and Pop Merchant Solutions loans up to 2X your monthly gross income.

You must have a minimum of 1,250.00 of monthly gross income for your business, so the maximum loan amount on that income is $2,500.00.

The maximum loan amount that any business can borrow is 1 million dollars. This means that you would need to have $500,000.00 in monthly gross income.

What is the Interest Rate?

Interest rates are determined on a case-by-case-basis. Basictech cannot, and will not speculate or guarantee any specific interest rate.

We will however tell you that the interest is fixed. Mom and Pop Merchant Solutions will review your application and make you an offer based on certain criteria.

Please note that your personal credit is not a major determining factor. However, they reserve the right to pull a credit report. These loans are based on your business gross monthly income and business activity.

The time you have been in business, and your online reputation are initial determining factors. If you have a good business, you will get approved.

Just a note: Basictech can help you get a good online presence, and put your business on the map with our Business Optimization Services.

They will give you the terms, and you either accept the offer, or you don’t. It is that simple, and there is never a fee.

The interest charged is not accumulated. You will know exactly how much you will pay back, and the time given to pay it back.

Penalties and Rewards

This is one of my favorite aspects of writing this Easy Business Loans by Basictech article.

MPBS will work with you. They will reward you with discounts for being a good customer, and will not charge you penalties for unforeseen problems, or early payoff.

Example: Say you own a store, and it gets ripped up by a storm. As long as you are up front with them, and let them know what is going on, they will work with you.

They also do not charge a pre-payment penalty like most lending institutions. If you pay your loan off early, they may give you a discount on your money.

MPMS also rewards good customers with better rates.

Get a Business Loan Fast

With easy business loans by Basictech, you can have the money you need in 5-7 business days. The application process is easy, and never a fee to apply or get the money. Email: basictech.pi@gmail.com,

Text your email to (614) 636-2150, we will send you the application.

You can always use the form below for any questions or comments.

Basictech Best in Columbus Award

Randy Baith

The Basictech Best in Columbus Award was given to Basictech Information Services in 2014.

Since revamping the Basictech Information Services website, I am re-posting the press release for the Basictech Best in Columbus Award.

2014 Award Best in Columbus

Receiving awards are a great honor to any business. Basictech Information Services has received this honor from the Columbus Award Program. “Recognizing and honoring the best of business.”

The award was granted to Basictech Information Services for business consultations and investigations in August of 2014.

According to the award website at columbus.amphlet.org; the Columbus Award Program is an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the Columbus Ohio area. Recognition is given to companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.

Basictech Information Services provides business services such as research, investigations, content creation, advice and counseling. Personal and small business services are provided along with tips for solving problems we all face everyday.

With a YouTube channel and scam busting website, Basictech exposes internet scams and fraud. Randy Baith, owner at Basictech Information Services stated; “any successful business must give back to the community; one must give in order to receive.”

Basictech often gives free information away for the asking. Basictech’s home page states; How can Basictech serve you? Mr Baith is totally transparent and reachable. Prompt, courteous service is something Basictech takes very seriously.

Randy Baith is also a current student (at the time of writing this press release) in his senior year at Liberty University online. His degree program is Bachelor of Science and Interdisciplinary Studies. His cognitive’s are Criminal Justice, Psychology, and Communications.

Mr. Baith also noted that he was surprised to have received the award saying: “I don’t feel I have done anything special, I am just doing what I love.” “I think it is important for a person to love what they do, it adds value to the service they provide.” He also noted that he opened the email while cleaning out his inbox and almost deleted it as spam.

Karen Hartwell commented on Basictech’s services stating: “Thank you so much Randy for helping me set up my EPS. I couldn’t have done it without you. I would’ve gone grey or bald. You were so patient with me,calmed me down,and explained everything so I could understand, went through the whole process with me and answered all my questions. I’m speechless. Just amazing. Think I found my angel!!”
